A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

We pass for what we are.  Character teaches above our wills.  Men imagine that they communicate thier virtue or vice by overt actions, and do not see that virtue or vice emit a breath ever moment....One tendency unites them all.  The voyage of the best ship is a zsig zag line of a hundred tacks.  See the line from a sufficent distance and it straightens itslef to the average tendency.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
